Edge-trimming planes work end grain or give final trimming cuts on jointed boards, for smooth edges exactly 90° to the face. This plane is cast in durable ductile iron for everyday use, and is available in a right-hand model with the left-hand model availablle upon request.
You may need only one model; the choice is often based on which of your hands is dominant, but neither model is exclusively for left- or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary. Having both lets you handle any grain direction, which is handy for working boards with only one true reference face, such as lengths of moulding.
They have a 12° bed angle and 30° blade skew. The 3.2mm thick, 31.8mm wide blades is PMV-11 steel and works wood up to 25mm wide. They weigh approximately 630g in the hand.
Depth is adjusted with a large thumb wheel and an independent traveller, for fast, accurate setting with no blade skewing. Set screws in the side keep the blade from shifting when it hits a knot. The fence is drilled so you can add blocks or a wooden wedge to cut controlled bevels, as used in boatbuilding.
